Home/Solution/How is personal protective equipment(PPE) used on construction sites?

In the construction projects, safety is a very important matter. We should always keep in mind: safety first.

Every day, our workers on construction sites may encounter various dangers every day. I sorted out the possible dangers on the construction site and made a summary. The hazards that workers may encounter on the construction site are:

1. Falling from a height;
2. Electric shock casualties;
3. Object hits;
4. Mechanical injuries;
5. Collapse accidents;
6. Fires: construction fires and smoking.

Construction engineering has always been a high-risk industry, and there are many accidents every year. If it is not controlled, it is likely to affect the smooth progress of project construction and even lead to serious consequences. Therefore, we need to figure out the possible accidents and dangers on the construction site, and then use professional PPE equipment to avoid the injuries caused by these accidents.The PPE equipment have construction site safety shoes,construction site helmet ,construction site safety jackets etc.

What measures and equipment should we choose to protect workers?

1).construction site safety shoes to protect your feet.(4 models)

Workers need to use their own legs and feet during construction, so protecting their feet is the most important thing. Having a safe working environment for feet is the most important thing on a construction site. So we need a pair of safety shoes that suit us.
There are many types of safety shoes. According to different working environments, we need to use different safety shoes.
If the place where you work is relatively hot, you are exposed to the scorching sun every day, and your feet are covered with sweat, what a blessing to have a pair of breathable and lightweight safety shoes at this time. At this time, you can choose this pair of lightweight safety shoes:

Compared to breathable safety shoes. Leather safety boots are the favorite of many factories, construction sites and other companies.

Because breathable construction site safety shoes have poor abrasion resistance, they are not suitable for places with harsh working environments. So people naturally consider leather safety shoes. Leather safety shoes have the characteristics of good wear resistance, long service life and better protection.

Because cowhide is more wear-resistant and has a long service life, this shoe uses 1.6mm cowhide as the shoe upper. Using the outsole of double PU, the wear resistance and anti-slip performance are greatly increased. The addition of some special materials can also enable the sole to have the characteristics of heat resistance, acid and alkali resistance and other harsh environments. As for the toe and midsole, we still use steel toe and steel midsole, which have good anti-smashing and anti-puncture functions. Even more gratifying is that this shoe still meets European standards. Have a CE certificate.So if some companies and factories need it, we are happy to supply you.
